Tour de Pologne 2020: The Route

The 2020 Tour de Pologne takes place from Wednesday 5 August to Sunday the 9th. The decision in terms of the GC will probably come down to the 4th stage, which is a circuitrace with numerous wall-like climbs. The route is rounded out by a number of flat to hilly stages. (Slideshow route/profile)

The opener of the Tour de Pologne is a race from Chorzów to Katowice. A bunch sprint is the most likely outcome.

A fast finishers showdown is again on the cards at the end of stage 2. The sprinters should take note of the slightly uphill finish line.

At 203.1 kilometres, stage 3 is the longest race of this Tour de Pologne. The route takes in seven intermediate climbs before the finale is played out on a rolling finishing circuit.

The 4th stage has written climbers and punchers all over it. The race in the High Tatra Mountains comprises three identical laps with a number of Ścianę’s, which is the Polish word for Walls. The finish climb is a fine example of the hardships ahead: 1.5 kilometres at 11%.

The final stage of the Tour de Pologne is, again, tailor-made for fast finishers.

Pavel Sivakov is title holder. He won the 2019 edition ahead of Jai Hindley and Diego Ulissi.
